Co-creating a Smart Prison with Innovative Technology
In line with the Correctional Services Department’s (CSD) plan to actively develop the smart prison system, the EMSD takes the initiative in sourcing and matching innovative technology solutions for client departments, and commenced three conceptual trial schemes since mid-2018 to enhance the efficiency of prison management and the level of security. These include the design and installation of state-of-the-art systems and equipment through the application of various innovative technologies, such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), bluetooth low-energy consumption technology and robotics, etc., with a view to building Hong Kong into a safer smart city.
The CSD has strict requirements on their monitoring systems and security equipment. In this connection, we have conceived various scenarios of potential incidents in the design process having regard to the actual environment. After several months of repeated testing and continuous improvement to the product design and computer algorithm, we start to see some initial results in the development of the dormitory monitoring system, including the Video Analytic Monitoring System, which mainly detects irregularities or self-harm behaviours of persons in custody through smart closed-circuit televisions and is being tested in four dormitories of Pik Uk Prison; as well as the introduction of smart wristbands at the Lo Wu Correctional Institution (LWCI) to tie in with the application of IoT. The LWCI is also installed with Health Signs Monitoring and Passage Surveillance Systems, which help frontline staff monitor the health conditions of persons in custody and track their locations of movement.
Besides optimising the management hardware, we are also dedicated to promoting process innovation. For example, the Drug-detection Robotic Arm System, which is currently undergoing a preliminary test at the Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre, can replace the manual inspection of drug products in the excreta of persons in custody.
Upon completion of the trial schemes for these new facilities, we will evaluate their effectiveness with the CSD and explore extension of such innovative technology solutions to other correctional institutions.
We are happy to share with clients the advanced technologies used to enhance security. For details, please contact Mr. Raymond Kan, Senior Engineer, at 2808 3384.
